Another paintover

I had more to work with this time.  The red rock was built by Reed Hawker in 3d, and most of the sky done by Dave McClellan (link on my sidebar).  The sky hadn't been placed in this world and they didn't really have a look for this area, other than they wanted it to be flowers and butterflies while still having some tie-ins to the rest of the old western town look.  I pieced this together, and Reed did a fantastic job at making the world look like this in the final game.

  1. I like the way the sun lights the forms differently depending on their location in the scene (some forms are back lit, some side lit). There must be an unseen waterfall on the right side of the picture, where the water meets the edge of the landscape! :) Great image, very bright and cheery.

  4. Joel: If only this wasn't made before the double rainbow, we totally would have done it.

  7. The lighting in this is spectacular how you achieve it without actually having the light source in your face which seems to happen with a lot of environments.

  9. Sam, I appreciate you acknowledging my part in that, but in the future, if my part was rainbows and teddy bear clouds, you don't have to credit me.

  11. Incredible. Digital paint is fascinating in and of itself, but you guys at Avalanche all seem to have a fun style to your work that sets it apart.
